A hidden and almost secret treasure!

I have been a fan/supporter/member of Bletchley Park for a long while and it was only very recently that I stumbled across the podcast...
How can this treasure trove of content be so well hidden?!
You have to publicise this podcast more widely. A lot of people even from the older demographic are much more IT savvy now and use smart phones etc. They don’t know what they are missing and you could be missing a lot of subscribers.

Inspiring

I love this podcast; I love the endless hours of hard work put into it by the staff and volunteers. I LOVE listening to interviews, I could listen to the Wrens and other veterans talk for hours and hours. Recently I discovered Western Approaches command centre in my hometown of Liverpool and was shocked to find that a similar secret function went on in an underground reinforced bunker, full of Wrens, marines, RAF etc! I visited twice after I found out (it’s been opened as a museum), and I would really love to visit Bletchley Park very soon. Thank you for inspiring me to apply for my Great Grandads WW2 Naval records. Great work, brilliant pods. Wish they’d taught us about this in school.

Fantastic podcast

I love this podcast! So interesting to hear the stories directly from the veterans of Station X plus some great insights from the archivists.
